In today's A.M. Hot Clicks, I told you that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban might skip on championship rings for his team in favor of something new and fresh. Tauntr.com looks at some of the possibilities.
The Mother Of All Registries
As I told you last week, Carmelo Anthony's mean PR people are keeping him from sending out a thank you note to Hot Clicks reader Todd Lewandowski, who sent the Knicks forward a $13 butter dish as a wedding gift. If any of you are rich enough to send Kim Kardashian and Nets forward Kris Humphries a gift, I hope you're treated in a better way. Among the items on the couple's registry: a $1,650 coffee pot, an $880 salad spoon and a $710 sugar bowl. Good grief.
This Is Just Cruel
The Peoria Chiefs (a Class A affiliate of the Cubs) are holding "Salute to the 1990s Chicago Bulls Championship Teams Night" on Thursday. The team announced today that as part of the festivities, it will also give away LeBron James 2011 NBA Championship replica rings to every fan in attendance.
